Mercury Mendip Challenge 2014
Sunday 1st June 2014
The Weston Mercury Mendip Challenge is an exciting sponsored walk for those looking to have fun, challenge themselves and raise funds for Weston Hospicecare. The routes are open to all individuals, teams, families and dogs! You can choose to run or walk your chosen distance and when you get back from your slog across the hills there will be food and drink stalls, as well as music for you and your supporters to enjoy.
How much does it cost?
£9 for adults and £5 for children (under 18, who must be accompanied by an adult).
The price includes:
- Entry to the walk
- Finishers medal
- Finishing goodies to replace those carbs!
Our event fees just cover the cost of running the event, so we really rely on your sponsorship money to raise vital funds for the Hospice. Once you’ve registered for the event you will be sent your pack which includes a sponsorship form. Whether you’re walking alone or with friends, try raising as much as you can for our local Hospice. Your friends will be so proud of your efforts, they are bound to want to help you out!
As always there are a variety of routes* to choose from:
5 mile fun walk – fancy dress is encouraged and there’s a prize for the best! We’ll keep the theme under wraps until closer to the event though.
10 or 20 miles – slightly more challenging for those who are looking to push themselves. Perhaps you did the 5 mile last year and fancy a crack at something tougher. These fabulous routes will certainly earn you your pork roll and at the celebratory after party!
30 miles – the biggy! Not for the faint-hearted, this route follows the entire length of the West Mendip Way from Wells to Uphill and is the ultimate walking and endurance challenge.
The walk guide will be available from April 2014.
